Very clicky. If your face fits you will be alright.
Cell Member (Former Employee), LincolnJune 4, 2014
Pros: overtime available.
Cons: job security?
A clicky environment with some strong personalities. If your face fits you will be alright and get an easy ride. It is a corporate company who relies heavily on the experience of a few and I think they are wrong in doing so.

Apart from the above. It is shift work and you can get a lot of overtime, including weekends. Therefore the money can be good.

They – more... have recently made some people redundant so job security is questionable.

The most enjoyable part of the day was coming home but everyone says that don't they. – less
